Elizabeth Dennis: Creating confident writers
“When students leave my class, they know their weaknesses and what they need to improve upon with their writing. But most importantly, they know their strengths as a writer and how effective they can be as a writer, whatever class they next take.”
— Elizabeth Dennis, Adjunct Instructor, Columbia College-Kansas City
